  • Best week ever Disney style

    Generally I would say that the best week ever Disney style would be talking about a week long stay at the parks. But the last 5 days have been so awsome. I have had an opportunity to do and see some great things!

    Saturday night I was invited to the Oakland Museum's Gala Fundraiser. The honorary Chairperson was Diane Disney Miller and all the attendees got to see the Behind the Magic - 50 years of Disneyland exhibit that opens this weekend ( This is the same exhibit that was at the Henry Ford Museum. Lot's of great stuff to see. I will definitely be back again before this exhibit leaves in August.

    The fundraiser was a lot of fun. There was good food and wine and dancing started at 10:00 pm but we had to leave to get some sleep. We had to be up at 4:30 am to catch a 6:30 am flight to LA to participate in MouseAdventure. Never done this before but it was a lot of fun. I know it is sponsored by another web-site but I bet most everyone who participates in the crazy treasure hunt spends a lot of time at this great forum.

    We met another couple who also had never participated in one of these events. A team of 4 newbies. To make maters worse, we choose the longer resort wide challenge - what were we thinking!!!! Well nothing ever goes smoothly - Southwest cancelled our 6:30 am flight and then there was some equipment difficulties on the 7:00 am flight. We didn't get to the resort until 10:00 am. Yikes already lost an hour! Well we had a great time; spent a few hours actually going on some attractions and headed home. What a day.

    I got to recover a bit on Monday and Tuesday and last night I finished up my best week ever by getting to see Cars last night. As a fundraiserfor the Emeryville Education Foundation, Pixar let 238 donors (the capacity of the Pixar theater) see one of the first public showings of Cars. What a treat. Got to go in Pixar. A little food and wine and an opportunity to stroll the galleries at Pixar. Saw all sorts of art related to the movie. The evening finished with a screening of the movie preceded by a preview of Ratatouille and the most current short One Man Band. I really enjoyed Cars and will certainly see it again when it opens in early June.

    Well work is unfortunately bringing me down from my Disney high. I guess I need to get back at it!

    See ya at the park!
